As previously announced back in July 2019, Malcolm Cannon leaves Cricket Scotland today after four years as Chief Executive.
Major progress has been made during his time in charge in all three key areas of participation, performance pathway and high performance with new programmes like All Stars, strengthened regional competitions for men and women and age groups and some of the best ever performances from both the men’s and women’s national teams. The organisation has also been restructured and a talented management team assembled.
Malcolm Cannon said: “It has been an absolute pleasure and an honour to have been given the opportunity to be the guardian of Cricket Scotland for the last four years, and I am hugely grateful to the board for recruiting me in the first place, supporting me throughout, and providing me with a positive environment in which to operate. The period has included some incredible successes and some notable landmarks, many of which were firsts in the long history of Scottish cricket and therefore sit very much in my career highlights file!
“It has been a terrific journey and as a complete convert to the game of cricket, I shall now look forward to following the continued progress of this great Scottish sport from outside the boundary rope.
Tony Brian, Chair of Cricket Scotland, said: “Malcolm has been key to the progress that has been made in the last four years and we are very grateful to him for all he has achieved. We wish him the very best in his new role at the Institute of Directors.
“We are in the midst of the process to appoint a successor to build on Malcolm’s achievements and take cricket in Scotland to the next level. We hope to make an announcement in the next month or so.”
At the request of the Cricket Scotland Board, Tony will take on the role of interim executive chair until a new CEO is appointed.
